Finding the right location to live, work and play is a challenge in today’s busy world. When choosing a new job you might consider commute time, changes in cost-of-living and your quality of life, all of which are inextricably linked to the location of your employer and, in particular, your office.
Office location is a high-stakes investment for businesses of all scales and all industries. How can a business predict where its ideal future employees are located? How do they balance the costs and mitigate the risks?
Our client, an international industry-leader in identity and access management with over 2000 employees, wanted to expand its operations in the US but faced this same dilemma. Rather than making a subjective decision, they turned to the data and brought Acaisoft’s data science and development team on board to deliver a machine-learning based app that would provide office site recommendations. The app stretched beyond just the client to be fully-customisable to any business's needs.
